On the final day of the Three County Fair, the longest consecutive running agricultural fair in the country, we are trying something new with an all local music festival. The $10 admission fee into the fair, on Labor Day, September 1'st, will include your admission to the festival. So, not only do you get to enjoy two amazing stages of music, but everything else in the fair as well!
There will be two stages, one indoor and one outdoor, hosting 13 of the Pioneer Valley's most talented groups. The Valley, and especiallyNorthampton, Massachusetts, is known for its music and art, and it is a pleasure and honor to bring you a much needed festival showcasing the eclectic and superb talent of the area.
Headlining the festival is Northampton's own all girl punk-rock, tour de force: POTTY MOUTH!
